A: Poured a half finger white copper head that settled to a thin cap. Color is a very deep garnet hued amber color. Carbonation can be seen streaming to the top from the middle of the glass like an ocean vent. Lacing and glass presence is great lasting 45 min into the pour.
S: First I smell dark fruits prunes, currants, and plum. Followed by a yeasty breadiness and meade. Sweet syrup.
T: Waves of flavor. Apple, ripe banana, brown sugar, caramel and chocolate.
M: Velvety smooth. The burn of the 10% ABV is completely absent. Full bodied while maintaining the drinkability. I could use some more carbonation, but the smoothness here is standout.
O: Really a balanced Quad. No date on the bottle, but I would very interested to understand the aging effect on this beer. This is the way a Quad should be.

05/15/14 On tap. A fine, fine beer. Caution, as this 10% ABV bomb is deceptive. It's as slick & smooth as your grandma said it would be. I find this to be a faultless beer...unless you plan on having more than a few (2 or 3). The seduction lies in the ultra inviting balance bitter & sweet (which should be a good lesson in life). With temperance this could prove to be an ally. I, for one, have learned to live with it, gladly.

Served on tap at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, MO. Smells of smoke, malt and alcohol. Taste lingers of oak, malt and alcohol. One of the best quads i've had. You definitely get some lingering alcohol, but its needed to balance the beer out and give it a bourbon esqe quality. Classic
